Stranger Than Fact (ARGREC02)
Two long-form, experimental ambient remixes of material from the John Lithium album, "The Remixable Stranger" (http://www.archive.org/details/TheRemixableStranger). In the midst of shimmering drones, fragmented synth melodies, stuttering industrial frequencies, time-shifted melodies, and wordless technoid languages can also be heard. Simultaneously comforting, unsettling, and enigmatic.
In the highly futurist aesthetic of this album, one might be tempted to claim that these songs are echoes from an almost incomprehensible future that has yet to come to pass. The truth is, of course, stranger than fact.
